COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottled, seasonal
single hop simcoe IPA
This Christmas, wish for a green Christmas. Where flurries of hop flakes blanket the world like you’ve never seen it before. And crunching through crisp, sparkling drifts releases billows of pineapple, citrus and papaya with every step. The reign of the snow angel is over. Long live the hop angel where parks and playgrounds become adorned with the outlines of celestial beings that fell to Earth from angry looking emerald clouds. Tune in to breakfast TV to find life’s on hold for 24 hours as this ’hop day’ demands you rocket down a hill on the back of a baking tray. Or simply raise a glass of this festive IPA as we wish you a very hoppy Christmas.

DruncanVeasey (8485) - Nr NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - NOV 28, 2013
12 pack. Orange amber with a low white head. None of that peachy sweet US bollocks here; crisp hairy chlorophyll, curry leaf, dry rasping pine and tropical Starburst. Corking tropical aroma wafting with blackcurrant, lychee, guava and dried curry leaf. Classic Christmas sessions. BrewDog bang back on form, doing what they do best with aplomb. Delicious.

Flaske 0,33l - Voodoo Doll 6,8% - kjøpt på Vinmonopolet i Brønnøysund og drukket på rom 208 på Elite Plaza Hotel i Örnskjöldsvik 31 Okt 13. Gyldenbrun. Middels høyt skum som varer noen minutter. God fruktaroma. Ananas & aprikos. Litt for mye kullsyre. Smaken er syrlig frukt. Får preg av tørket frukt etter hvert med en svakt bitter avslutning.
